I was born in 1979, so the toys of the '80s hold a special place in my heart.
1. Cabbage Patch Kids
These dolls were the dream of every little girl in the 1980s and parents were ready to fight complete strangers to get it for their daughters. In it's height, over 3 million Cabbage Patch Kids were adopted in the 1983 Christmas shopping season.
2. Care Bears
As a kid I loved the Care Bears TV show and even owned a few of the lovable, multicolored bears. Care Bear Stare!
3. My Little Pony
Cute magical ponies with brush-able hair and accessories, what more could a little girl ask for? Their popularity has continued even in present times and they still have a large following of Bronies and Pegasisters.
4. Magic 8 Ball
This all knowing 8-ball broke kids hearts all through out the '80s. Fun fact. it was even modeled after a device of an authentic psychic.
5. Atari Gaming System
